To commemorate the 100th birthday of the late Louis “Studs” Terkel, the author, historian, and radio host, the Studs Terkel Centernary Committee in conjunction with the Media Burn Video Archive will host a free film festival of previously unseen archival footage of Terkel on June 17. The FREE event, hosted by the Chicago Cultural Center, will include several pieces documenting Terkel’s relationship with Chicago, the site of his long-running radio show and home to many of his oral histories’ subjects. The festival will run from 2 to 8 p.m., and will cap with a discussion of the material with members of the Terkel Centenary Committee and other colleagues and friends. The event is free to the public.
